In the evening half of the thirty-fifth game day of the ISHF LIGA PRO ELECTROSTAL OPEN 2021, Belsk and Ledianye Voiny, in the absence of other contenders for high places in the table, decided between them the distribution of forces for the next day.
Almaty flew past today like a plywood over Paris, once again producing a scoreless day as far as wins and points are concerned. The team failed to score in the first match, but in subsequent encounters the team managed to overcome that hurdle, though it did not help them to snag any points this evening.
Ferrum continued to produce some pleasant surprises, beating Almaty and resisting, albeit not always successfully, the other opponents. The team from Latvia lost the match against the Ice Warriors, conceding three unanswered goals in a matter of minutes.
The Ledianye Voiny will definitely remain in sixth place, but for now the Moscow team has a chance to snag a higher position in the rankings. The team continues on their winning ways, although to do so they sometimes have to overcome themselves and snatch victory from the clutches of their rivals. Defeat at the hands of Besk, against whom the final score on the scoreboard only differed by 1 point, is no indication of the team’s current state.
Belsk managed to regain 2nd place by beating all their opponents in the evening session of game day 35. The team from Minsk twists up the intrigue at the finish line of the championship, offering all short hockey fans a classy delicacy in the form of a regular season denouement.
The results of the evening half of the thirty-fifth game day of the ISHF LIGA PRO ELECTROSTAL OPEN 2021:
Belsk – Almaty 5:1
Ferrum – Ledianye Voiny 6:7
Ledianye Voiny – Almaty 10:5
Ferrum – Belsk 3:6
Belsk – Ledianye Voiny 7:6
Almaty – Ferrum 2:3
Crystal and Kuznya return on game day 36. Much has changed in the standings during their absence, although it only lasted a day: Crystal dropped out of the bottom three, the Uralets made a confident move towards the medals and the Armeets became unreachable for their opponents. In the morning half of the game day, Crystal can reclaim the top 3 while Uralets are on pause, but for that they will have to beat a gaining Belsk, while in the evening half Kuznya can lay claims to return to the top three, but for that the team from Mogilev will need to pick up 3 wins.
